Daily Overview

As the team behind the Daily Overview write, the term overview effect refers to the "sensation astronauts have when given the opportunity to look down and view the Earth as a whole." The Daily Overview offers overview photographs that show our world in a number of new ways. As of this write up, one recent overview (as the team calls these photographs), shows an aerial view of agricultural development in Calipatria, California which, at 180 feet below sea level, has the lowest elevation of any place in the western hemisphere. Another overview shows Morocco's Ouarzazate Solar Power Station, which includes thousands of mirrors. Yet another overview reveals the intricate, symmetrical design of Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Fans of the Daily Overview can sign up to receive an email when new photographs are added to the collection. In addition, visitors won't want to miss the Juxtapose section, which places two overviews next to one another to show how spaces change over time. For example, one juxtapose feature compares a tulip field in Lisse, Netherlands in March (just before the tulips bloom) and April (with the colorful flowers are in full bloom).
